Hair Loss Vitamin Priority Checklist


  • pg 1
									While an individual's genetic makeup can have probably the most
significant bearing on hair loss, attention to diet and nutrition by
reviewing this hair loss vitamin checklist can certainly help in the
fight.Hair follicles depend upon a blood supply rich in proteins,
nutrients, and oxygen to produce new cells that form the basis of hair so
ensuring you get a daily intake of necessary vitamins and minerals can
make a major contribution to stopping hair loss and maintaining healthy
hair growth.This article is divided into two parts. Firstly we provide a
comprehensive list of all the vitamins and minerals which contribute to
healthy hair. Secondly we focus on the relatively few which can have a
major impact on hair growth.Important Note: It is wise to consult with a
medical practitioner if you are taking medication or suffer with a health
problem as increased intake of some of these vitamins can have adverse
effects.Hair Loss Vitamin & Mineral Comprehensive List

Hair Loss Vitamin & Mineral Priority ListVitamin AFood sources for

Papaya, Dried peachesVegetables: Carrots, Tomatoes, Dark green leafy
vegetables, Parsley, Brussel Sprouts, BroccoliProtein: Crabmeat, Oily
fishThe recommended daily dose of Vitamin A is 5,000 IU's (International
Units). Pregnant women are advised not to exceed 5,000 IU's per
day.Vitamin B complex (B1, B2, B3, B6, B12)The B complex range of
vitamins can be found in a wide range of foods including:
Milk, eggs, meats, yoghurt, brewer's yeast, whole-grain cereals, nuts,
fruits, fish, liver.Health stores provide B complex vitamins in tablet
form which many find a useful supplement to their regular diet.Vitamin
CAs Vitamin C is a natural detoxifier and aids with circulation it ranks
very high in the hair loss vitamin list of importance. As the body does
not store Vitamin C it is important to ensure a constant intake, perhaps
aided by supplements.Food sources for Vitamin C:Fruit: Blackcurrants,
Raspberries, Sour Cherries, Citrus fruits, Bananas, Avocados, Rhubarb,
Grapefruit, Papaya, Strawberries, Honeydew Melon, Cantaloupe,
Blueberries, Apricots, PineappleVegetables: Green Peppers, Artichokes,
Leafy green vegetables, Beetroot, Cabbage, Cauliflower, Brussel Sprouts,
PeasThere is a variation in viewpoint as to the recommended daily intake
ranging from 30mg to 200mg.Vitamin EVitamin E is effective in maintaining
peripheral circulation and therefore takes a high place in the hair loss
vitamin priority list. It will need to be taken as a supplement as it is
not possible to get enough Vitamin E from the foods we eat.Some Vitamin E
can be absorbed from wheat germ, peanuts, pulses, and green leafy
vegetables.ZincZinc is now understood to be an important antioxidant
nutrient and it is an essential component in the body's enzyme
systems.Food sources for Zinc:Meat: Beef, Lamb, Chicken, TurkeySea Food:
Crabmeat, Oysters, Salmon, Lobster, ClamsVegetables: Baked potato, Peas,
SpinachGrains, Cereals, Pulses: Lentils, Lima Beans, Beans, Whole wheat
bread, OatmealDairy: Yoghurt, MilkThe recommended daily allowance is
between 12-15mg.Long Term Versus Short Term RemedyThere is a huge demand
for a 'quick fix' hair loss solution which partly explains the popularity
of drugs such as Propecia and Rogaine, even though results from these
drugs vary greatly and the long term commitment necessary can involve a
substantial financial outlay.On the other hand, many persons realize that
approaching the problem of hair loss with reasonable expectations,
following a regimen that includes attention to diet and exercise, while
taking longer, will often result in a steady increase in the health of
the hair and scalp with a reduction in hair loss and a greater density of
head hair.Being acquainted with the hair loss vitamin priority list above
will help in making sure one's diet is supporting a healthy hair
program.If you would like further information on how to coordinate these
factors into a powerful hair growth regimen, I strongly recommend an
ebook I obtained some time ago by leading hair loss analyst Jonathon E.
Phillips. This inexpensive 168 page book, "Hair Loss No More" takes the
mystery away from hair loss and at the same time evaluates some of the
sensational claims made in the hair loss industry.The most practical part
of the book is part II where Mr. Phillips sets out a step-by-step hair
power regimen that forms a powerful strategy in the fight against hair
loss. The hair loss vitamin checklist above forms a part of the overall
